Come enjoy a wonderful evening of yoga and glow in the dark ecstatic dancing in beautiful Market Square. Our second annual chairty event is taking place this August!! Throughout the night we will deeply connect to ourselves, others and Mother Earth. The evening will consist of an opening meditation, a 30-45 minute heart opening yoga class, cacao elixirs, 1.5 hours of ecstatic dancing, and a gong meditation to close the evening. People will be given the option to cover themselves in glow in the dark body paint. Glow in the dark sticks will also be provided to wear at the dance.

Ecstatic Dance is a lively, full body moving meditation that increases fitness, quiets the mind and allows your mosty authentic self to show up fully and completely. It is a free form dance where the music is the teacher. There is no choreography to follow. Ecstatic dance is primarily about listening to the music, feeling the vibrations that it sends throughout your body, and letting go of what should be and opening to a creative unprepared reality where music is the master. Dance is a powerful presence tool. It helps one to stay in the here and now and shift away from past memories and future worries. Although the rhythm is shared by all, once the full range of vibrations are felt, the music inspires each individual uniquely. This is a safe, non-judgemental space where we can fully connect, embrace and accept our true core selves.

WHAT ELSE TO EXPECT:

-safe space to express, dance, breath, move and connect
-health and wellness vendors
